Confusing and disappointing
12 July 2000 | by (cyberspace) – See all my reviews

The protagonist tracks down her sister (not brother, as in a comment elsewhere) and finds only a corpse. Following in her footsteps to find out what happened to her, the protagonist is plunged into a confusing world where she seems to be the only one who isn't sure what's what.

Actually, she's not alone. We as the audience are just as muddled, and while we can pick up a clue or two having read the short description on the jacket of the videotape, we wonder whether we would really understand if no one had given a short summary beforehand.

We shouldn't really be disappointed, as this cheap B-movie doesn't promise much and delivers just as little. There are no sex scenes to speak of, and the "mind control" is just headphones and strobe lights. If you don't like the first 15 minutes, stop. There's nothing new in the rest of the movie.
